Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in the medical practice, it is associated with an increased total and cardiovascular mortality, as well as cardiovascular morbidity, including stroke and heart failure. AF is encountered in different medical specialties including cardiology, family medicine and emergency medicine as well. Treatment goal is to minimize stroke risk but also taking into account the quality of life. Therefore rate or a rhythm control strategies must be carefully selected. This review focuses on natriuretic polypeptides (NPs) as potential useful markers in AF patients management.
